St Mary’s College Chapel Choir sings fortnightly services in the College Chapel, alternating between Choral Evensong and Sung Eucharist, with additional services and our College Carol Service in Durham Cathedral. We have also been on tour to locations such as Florence, Nice and Tallinn. We audition in October for paid choral scholar positions but the rest of the choir is welcome to sing on a non-auditioned basis.

Please get in touch if you are interested in joining – singers from all colleges are welcome!
